Yr.7 Unit 4: Let's Get Moving
The world around us is full of different types of motion, and these different motions happen because of different forces. This unit investigates the effects of unbalanced forces in common everyday situations.
Understanding the nature of forces is useful to be able to make predictions of how machines will move and behave. Being able to make predictions like this is fundamental to physical sciences and engineering!
